A rollercoaster ride of emotions, wrapped up in an intense storyline. Cruel Intentions had me laughing, crying, shouting, and feeling warm inside. There are twists and turns, and revelations I never saw coming.
I will just say that when this is called a DARK High School Bully Romance it's not a lie - there are some moments that will make you question how you view situations both in the book and real life, and one scene in particular that made even me very uncomfortable at just how dark and twisted some characters were.
The FMC Abigail is such a brave and courageous person, but sometimes I feel like her bravado is naive and over the top. However, there are moments when I feel like she could be part of who we all aim to be as she questions the way she feels and tries to figure out a way to make sense of it all in her head. What I love the MOST about her though is that she doesn't just roll over at the word "Sorry" from anyone, and my favourite part of the book is when she says... "Sorry doesn't magically make everything right... ...You're supposed to have my back. And you. Did. Nothing."
The main male characters are an interesting combination of personalities that all seem to complement one another, and there isn't just a blanket reaction from them. Instead, Siobhan Davis has taken the time to make sure each character she has interwoven into the story is its own entity, which with the amount of supporting characters we have is not an easy feat.
This story has definitely reeled me in, and I'm interested to see where it goes in the nextinstalment of Rydeville High Elite.
** I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author for review consideration **
Omg! What a book! Completely devoured this as it just kept me on the edge of my seat and I had to find out what happens. Loved everything about this book! And boy was it hot. I had a roller-coaster of emotions reading this and that cliffhanger at the end... I know I'll be thinking of this book daily till the nextinstalment. Amazing read, unique characters, riveting plot and tons of feels. Mind blowing good!
Best book I have read in a long time. I actually re-read this book 4 days later because I had such a big book hangover. Abby is a strong, fierce and resourceful woman. She takes the crappy hands she is dealt and rolls with it. I fell in love with Cam. It was hard not to. He is a tortured soul with a conflicted feelings. Jackson and Sawyer are great too and provide relief when it’s needed. I cannot wait for the nextinstalment!
This is a fantastic book with tremendous character development. The story is gripping and the author has not shyed away from gritty topics. Great read cant wait for the nextinstalment have pre-ordered already!
I was really hoping this was a reverse harem series, and although Abby is surrounded by so much hotness I don’t think she will end up will all of them.
So much angst in this book I really couldn’t put it down. It was like being a witness to a train wreck and you could help but watch everything unfold and get invested in the characters. They are developed so well and the storyline... omg 😲 🤯
I can’t wait for the nextinstalment in the series I really need to know what has happened to Abby.
This book had me by the metaphorical balls the whole time.
From the beginning when Abby was trying to take her life to the last sentence. Hello Cliffhanger.
I hated the way all the males around her treated her and how she was a possession, not a human being. She was the property of her father, then became the property of Trent which was absolutely sickening.
Abby's world is so messed up and the violence inflicted upon her from the people who are supposed to protect her was hard to read at times. I felt emotionally wrecked reading through some of the scenes. Especially the scene where she was examined by Trent.
This story has me so invested in the characters. I really need to see where this goes. Even the secondary characters are interesting. I find myself wanting to know more.
Great read, definitely different to what I've been reading lately. The level of mind fxxxery, unpredictability and violence is woven masterfully throughout this story keeping me on the edge of my seat.
Can't wait for the nextinstallment. #damnyoucliffhanger
Cruel Intentions is a very suspenseful story from the very first word to the very last. Some parts of this story may be hard to read and get through but is also very gripping that will have you turning that page until the end. Siobhan has captured a very dark, powerful, emotional read in this new Rydeville High Series. Cannot wait for the nextinstalment. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
